COVID 19 Office Update
We remain committed to taking care of your healthcare needs and keeping you informed of the latest COVID 19 updates. We are being as creative as possible to work around the challenges of caring for our patients while keeping patients and staff protected. Thank you for your flexibility and understanding in these stressful times! Here are the modifications for patient visits, schedules, and office policies for phone/portal/telehealth visits (effective on March 23, 2020). We ARE OPEN and seeing patients in the office.
**We have COVID-19 PCR tests for our patients which are sent by overnight FedEx to a private lab. Results are typically available in 3-4 days.
- Morning appointments: only newborns and well child visits in office.
- Afternoon appointments: sick visits by appointment only in office and by telehealth.
- Saturday 411 Telehealth appointments from 9am — 1pm.
- Weekday office hours 8 am-5pm (closed from 5-6 pm); Saturday Telehealth 9am -1pm
- A credit card on file is now required for all patients.
- There will be a $25 charge for all phonecalls and portal messages for medical advice.
- There will be a $10 charge for all prescription refills.
- 411 Telehealth services will be billed like an in-office visit to your insurance but if the claim is denied, you may be responsible for a maximum fee of $75.
- If possible, please limit to 1 parent and child for office visits.
- If you are running more than a few minutes late for an appointment, we may have to reschedule you.
FLU SHOTS ARE HERE! We will offer the vaccine by appointment only for patients and their parents to facilitate social distancing. We have a limited supply of FluMist nasal spray vaccine for children ages 2 and up (without asthma), and will offer that to children only. Here is what you need to know:
- To limit the time in the office, please print out the flu consent form at home, complete one for each family member getting a vaccine, and bring the forms with you to your appointment. Please review the Flu Shot information sheet or Flu Mist information sheet at home. This will make the process as smooth and quick as possible!
- Children ages 6 months through 8 years receiving flu vaccine for the first time need 2 doses of vaccine given one month apart for optimal protection.
- We advise getting flu vaccine as soon as possible, ideally before November. Immunity from the vaccine should last through the entire flu season (now until early May).
- If your child is already scheduled for a well child visit, siblings and parents can also get a flu shot at that appointment to avoid an extra trip and limit exposure but this needs to be scheduled in advance.
- Flu shot-only appointments will be clustered in the afternoons and every other Saturday morning. We encourage the entire family to come at one visit.
- Appointments will be staggered so no one is in the waiting room.
- We bill insurance for your child’s flu vaccine so there is no out of pocket cost. Flu shot for parents and self-pay patients is $35. FluMist for self-pay patients is $40.
- We will offer flu shot to parents until December 1.
